Samuel Arnoldo's story

Samuel is 41 years old and lives in his own house with his wife and two daughters. He works as a tailor. His business is set up in his place of residence. He is responsible for creating formal wear, uniforms, and casual clothing. He is very detail-oriented and does a very good job, allowing him to have the loyalty of many customers, friends, and neighbors. Samuel prepares commissioned work and also produces garments to sell in his home. Samuel is asking for a loan to buy fabrics in different colors and prints, thread, needles, buttons, and everything he needs to make clothing so he can do more work and obtain better profits to give his family a better quality of life.
